Additional Notes

Prior to June 1999, data on bills financing include bills refinanced by the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

From March 2004, the industry categories have been refined according to the Singapore Standard Industrial Classification adopted by the Singapore Department of Statistics. The industrial classification is by end-use of loans. If this classification is not possible, the borrower's main business activity will be used.
